    I installed the Sprint roaming patch when it first came out, but then I was having other, unrelated problems and had to do a hard reset. My original crashing problem is fixed, but the question(s) is/are:

    1) Is there any way to see whether the roaming patch is already installed?

    2) Does the roaming patch go away after a hard reset? I seem to remember reading that it will stay in place after a 'reset' but hard/soft wasn't clear.

    3) Is there any harm in installing it twice (that is, installing it on top of itself)?

    Thanks.

    From the P1 support page:

    Once the patch is complete, you can delete the application from your smartphone. The effects of the patch will remain after you delete the application. If your device is ever erased completely, the effects of the patch will remain; you should not need to re-install the patch after running once.

    The only time you need to re-install this patch is if you run the restoration rom procedure at my site, that WILL remove the update, nothing else will.

    That's very interesting because it implies that a hard reset doesn't really restore the Treo to its original condition. And that might mean that other software could also stay in place, either on purpose or through crummy programming, after a hard reset.

    I think the roaming patch is actually written to the phone's firmware which is not effected by a hard reset.
